About this show

Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of This Is Like That by Michael Sean Cirelli, a solo performance piece in the form of an eccentric slide lecture with a temperamental carousel projector and an apple. The play is a collaboration between Cirelli and director Emerie Snyder.

After unexpectedly realizing that he's meant to be giving a lecture to everyone around him, a befuddled language professor attempts to explain the beauty he finds in language — only he cannot find the words. A piece for anyone who has ever felt misunderstood, or felt they might feel understood but weren't, This Is Like That is a one-person play that grapples with questions about language, identity, religion, and the stories we tell others and ourselves.
